Review of William Casebeer, Natural Ethical Facts [Book Review]

Philosophical Quarterly 55:532-534 (2005)
The aim of William Casebeer’s book is ‘to show that, theoretically speaking, there is no reason to rule out a scientific naturalized ethics tout court, and that, practical speaking, by taking into account recent developments in evolutionary biology and the cognitive sciences, the outlines of one promising form of such an ethics can be sketched’ (p. 1-2). The result is an interesting treatment of a wide variety of issues at the intersection of cognitive science, meta-ethics, normative theory, and evolutionary psychology, a treatment that is often suggestive but also frequently lacking in detailed argumentation.
